A tree-lined path at the Chateau de Raray.
A charming road in the town of Raray.
Fields of yellow flowers, so yellow our eyes hurt, were too
numerous to count along our drive in the countryside!
The gorgeous Chantilly Castle.
A spectacular staircase inside Chantilly.
The quaint city of Bruges, Belgium.
Bruges is known as the "Venice of the North."
A very interesting sculpture in Bruges.
The sweet horse and delightful tour guide that took us
on our carriage ride through Bruges.
The Abbey of Mont Saint Michel.
The day was so gorgeous and the sky was so blue!
Although Mont Saint Michel has been in use since the year 708 AD,
the current Abbey was built in the 14th Century.
We loved the angles and curves inside the ancient Abbey!

Sacre Coeur Cathedral against the cloudy sky.
The stunning Sainte-Chappelle, a chapel in the heart of Paris,
which was finished in 1238.
